Hi

I regularly format cells for numbers as follows, by selecting the cutom option within Format Cells

#,##0;[Red](#,##0);"-"

Is there a way I can add this to a button? I guess via a macro??

Thanks
J

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

Try with a button from the Controls toolbar

Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Selection.NumberFormat = "#,##0;[Red](#,##0);" & Chr(34) & "-" & Chr(34)
End Sub

Select the range then click the button to apply the formatting.
